About Carol

Carol and Little Buddah

Carol Carnes came into this world as the US joined the war in Europe. She remembers black outs and rationing and whispers about the people down the street who were Jewish. Carol attended an integrated high school and was shocked at the racism and fear of difference. She lived in Hawaii as a young adult. It was there that she felt the joy of diversity and the commonality among all people. The melting pot of cultures and ethnicities was a rich blending that she found nourishing. It was these and other experiences of personal challenges that led her to question the religious and cultural beliefs that kept humanity in emotional chains and self imposed struggle and strife. She longed for something; a philosophy, a way of thinking about the universe that made sense and brought possibility into reality.

In Hawaii she learned an ancient meditation technique that opened her mind and began the emotional healing she needed to find her own potential. Shortly after learning to meditate she was led to a New Thought spiritual center where she found the intellectual basis for what her intuition had been sensing as true and reliable.

Today she is a New Thought teacher, an ordained minister of International Centers for Spiritual Living, a world traveller who has been in the company of HH the Dalai Lama and other world leaders in small group dialogues. She is a member of the Association for Global New Thought and an inductee into the Martin Luther King International chapel Board of Preachers at Morehouse College. Dr. Carol is actively retired and living in Southern California. She is available for speaking engagements, workshops and retreats.
